ABSTRACT
An encyclopedia entry for "suicide" is presented. It is noted that people with epilepsy (PWE) are ten times more likely to commit suicide than the general population. Risk factors associated with suicide include an axis 1 diagnosis, physical health problems, family issues and life stressors. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) warned against the connection between antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and suicidal thoughts and behavior.
